rhinoms Superleague XVII Previews - Round 9
Posted by southstander on March 29 2012 - 06:46:30

by rhinoms

What a weekend.

Our pundits both got just two of the seven fixtures right as the underdogs overcame the favourites in Super League Round 8.

rhinoms saved a little pride by getting the exact winning margin for Hull FC over Castleford, but the only other outcome that both got rights was the Warrington win over the Warriors.

Will this weekend be another to keep your money in your pocket?

Read more here....

After another weekend of shocks (not just hair styles) we enter RD 9 this weekend and more than 1 club will be hoping to provide a backlash.


The home side have now slumped to bottom of the league after a spirited but ultimately defeat last week against a resurgent FC.

The visitors arrive on the back of a morale boosting win against a highflying Giants who seemingly rested/rotated one or two players too many.

Another tough game for the ragged hosts in prospect and they'll have to improve again to compete with a huge pack and very confident visiting team.

Expect some fire and desperation from Basils' hillbillies but not enough to prevent to get the spoils against a tough and confident Red half of Fish-town.

HKR by 14.

The in form hosts return to their reef on the back of a strong away day last week and entertain a team surprisingly poorer off the field than they are on it.

The battered and skint visitors are on the slid after a humiliating defeat against the Reds the news has broke that the power brokers at the RFL crapper are completely skint and the begging letters are already posted.

A real battle in prospect but how much can Whispering Potter get out of a team lacking quality and now potentially unpaid.

I think the visitors will be fired up enough to give it a go for an hour but the Gentle touch will prevail and take the spoils amidst plenty of "we are contenders" calls from the local plankton.

FC by 16.

Twi teams who meet this week on the back of bad defeats for the visitors the coaches gamble on rotation/resting back-fired away at HKR in an 18 point defeat.

Whilst all that was going on the defending champs just never turned up against Saints and got the pasting their performance deserved.

The Blue 'n' Amber (and pink) will be fired up and looking to bounce back straight away to show last week was a blip rather than a return to "last seasons regular efforts".

For the visitors they will still be confident after an easy win at HQ last year (although they got pasted in the brawl) and will make it a hard game.

Plenty of blood and thunder in prospect and no lack of professionalism will be shown by both teams but I think the home team will be too determined to take the spoils.

Rhinos by 10.

The home side really did a job away from home last time out and will have to be even better again when the wounded Rat boy and co come to the new Stadium.

The visitors were so near yet so far against Wire last week but pudding Luaki showed his true worth and cost them with his lack of brain cells and total ineptitude on a RL field.

Veivers seems to get some good efforts out of his team and they are capable of some decent RL but can they do it consistently and pass a "top team test"??

I think the hosts will battle and show more resolve than they did in their last home outing but the visitors have just too much quality to leave gravy less.

Pies by 10.

The game of the round at the HJ with both teams going into it ion the back of morale boosting wins.

The home team ground out a tough 2 points at the pie-dome whilst the plastic scousers were dishing their annual home hiding to the team who take the big prize off them on a regular basis.

This should be a battle royale Wire really have a poor history against the visitors and the ST's are looking to put the 4 defeats in 5 well and truly behind them to get their top 4 charge back on track.

Some quality on show and it should come down to either M.Monaghan or Roby taking control for the respective teams on the back of tough uncompromising packs.

It's a hard one to call but I just think the new found momentum will see the visitors just scrape home by a whisker.

Both teams enter this one on the back of shocks for the visitors they got their second win no-one saw coming whilst the usual rampant hosts lost out to a determined and excellent Wakey performance.

This is gonna be a long day for the visitors because one we al know is they can't put back to back efforts together as their last post victory efforts prove.

A fired up and angry Dragons side will be too big, too quick and too hot to handle.

Another dour and post hiding press conference from razor blade gargling Betts beckons.

Dragons by 22.

A shocking away defeat to the SL newbies last week and the home team must surely be close to announcing the second coaching casualty of 2012.

This week the visitors "Darn Sarf" are a resurgent Wakey who finally clicked for 80 minutes in a cracking win against the Dragons last time out.

I think the home team really are not gelling despite some quality within the ranks and whatever ideas the coaching staff are putting across they certainly aren't working nor good enough for SL wins.

Coach Agar and his team should arrive confident and with the likes of Smith, John and a tough pack singing from the same hymn sheet I think they will get their claws into another two points.

If you are traveling to a game have safe journey and enjoy the game.

Also if any of you haven't yet donated to sport relief ignore what a bald headed out of touch ignoramus has said it's not "unprofessional" to back to a very, very good cause.

Thanks for reading.
